The creativity and imagination on display all but guarantee that this will be a book your child can return to again and again to not only learn these classic rhymes but marvel at the intricate photos. A HUGE recommend.
I collect children's books - vintage and new - and I can honestly say this is the most beautiful one I own. I can't imagine how long it must have taken her to create it.
